I just read interesting article about Richard Tognetti. He was taught by Wiliam Primrose. 

It was interesting to know about Primrose and that he was losing his hearing. Imagine Primrose conducting amateur townorchestra withlots of kids!!! It is inspiring to know that great musicians gave so much to music education.


I found this clip of clip of period instrument performing Rameau with Richard Tognetti.

This is very nice playing - honouring the stylistic traditions of French baroque music, even if played on modern instruments Smiley  Thanks - I enjoyed this  Smiley

Who are the other bright young conductors working in Europe now?  I mean, the ones of whom we haven't heard much yet?

This is for Kurt Sanderling to celebrate his life.
It is farewell and RIP.

HIs life story is amazing. He was a repetiteur at the Berlin Staatsoper, but then Nazis came to power in1933. He had a post waiting for him in Cleveland, but wasn't able to get a visa. He turned to the USSR. There he was working at the MOscow Radio Symphony orchestra and then at Leningrad philharmonic where he worked with music director Yevgeny Mravinsky.

We discussed Shostakovish on the other thread and his character. He helped Sanderling when he was forced to take 2sabbatical2 by the Soviets in the 1950. Then Stalin died in 1953 and he was able to leave for the West in 1960.
I found it fascinating.

I don't know if we should have another thread for past conductors or we can write interesting information about conductors here. I was amazed at his story and I didn't know it.

Kurt Sanderling 1912 - 2011 RIP

Yes, that's a different story about the USSR and Sanderling to the one we are used to hearing Smiley

He was an excellent conductor, and we owe him much.

Philippe Jordan is another name we probably should learn. He was appointed to be conductor in Vienna Symphony orchestra and he is only 36.

I didn't, until reading your posting!

Whatever you think, the results justify the work...
